GUN FREE SCHOOL ZONES ACT OF 1990

This act, a product of the Clinton administration, criminalizes every lawful gun owner who travels with a firearm outside the home, with a few narrow exceptions. It was never intended to do this, and needs to be amended. Under the proposed amended act below, schools themselves would remain gun-free zones, and the near-total gun ban this law erroneously creates in America would be corrected.

Aside from the unsavory contempt this law shows for the traditional American right to keep and bear arms, it creates a situation where the right to arms is effectively banned in populated areas. This is simply unacceptable and must be fixed. The needed amendment deletes 18 words from a legal definition, see it here. Guns will still be banned from school grounds under this amendment.

• We have here a textbook example of a bad law, a feel-good law,
with no crime fighting component, that never should have been passed in the first place

• Criminalizes the routine actions of half the population.

• Creates tens of millions of five-year federal crimes daily—
with no actual crime committed, only paper offense

• Utterly unenforceable, never intended to be enforced

Congress under Bill Clinton did to the Right To Keep And Bear Arms.
